Tropical Cyclone "Marcus" (Category 3) is located offshore from the northwest
Kimberley coast and is moving westwards. Heavy rain and thunderstorm areas are
occurring with this system. Converging winds feeding into this system over
central western NT and northern WA are triggering a broad area of thunderstorms.
The monsoon trough extends from "Marcus" across the Arafura Sea through Torres
Strait to the northwest Coral Sea. Showers and storms are active about the Gulf
of Carpentaria and northern QLD.

Further south, a strong cold front is moving over far northeastern TAS and
through the Bass Strait. A large area of speckled cloud, with isolated
thunderstorms is visible west of this front. Onshore winds are directing areas
of low cloud across the southern Australia coastline.
